Northpoint is the official freerunning/parkour group for parkour-online.com
Northpoint has been going for three years. Originally started in 2005 by Dave Barber, Rob Barber, Max Cave and Benj Cave the Horsham based group started out with no previous experience in gymnastics, trampolining or anything else that would help them. They started with the basics, teaching themselves through trial and error, learning new moves and constantly improving.
Later on, in July 2007, Drew Taylor became the newest member of Northpoint. He'd been trampolining since 2004 and had competed in regional competitions. The techniques he'd learnt through trampolining enabled him to improve quickly when he first took up parkour in 2006, and by July 07 it was agreed he was up to the Northpoint standard. In 2008 Rob left the group and once again Northpoint comprised just four members. Northpoint is considered one of the best freerunning groups in West Sussex. They train regularly and their skills continue to improve.
Northpoint has four members...
Drew Taylor - age 14
Dave Barber - age 14
Max Cave - age 16
Ben Cave - age 14
